１９００年代初期， 我祖先由東歐移美國。 其來自： In the early 1900's my ancestors immigrated from eastern Europe to the USA. They were from what are currently Zabolotiv, Ukraine (A); Kamen Kashirsky, Ukraine (B); Suwalki, Poland (C); Kaunas, Lithuania (D) 於今烏克蘭、波蘭、立陶宛。 All within the Pale of Settlement.
未離歐者戰後無跡。 Those that didn't leave Europe were wiped out in the wars.
My grandparents were all Jewish. My parents are/were secular, non-religious or anti-religious Jews. And I... well, I have no religion at all! 我祖先是猶太人，但我本人不是。
I'll just list some of my ancestors here, so one can try them in search engines.

My second cousin, Kevin Engleman says (9/2013)
My father [MIT MATHLAB etc.] Carl and your father were first cousins. Specifically: My father's Mother, Ella, was a sister of your father's father.
Here is a cut-and-paste from my mother [Doris] -- it may create more questions than it answers: "All I can say about Hendelman is that it was spelled Handelman with an umlaut on the first "a" (pronounced Hendelman), and is the name the family crossed the Atlantic with. The family lore, possibly apocryphal, is that some first-grade teacher in Baltimore heard it as Engelman, and that stuck. For some. It became other variations in other branches, e.g., Endelman in the case of the woman I visited in Newton whose married name was Marjorie Lees. A woman who lives around the corner from me comes from a, maybe, Edelman branch, etc.."
OK, so... Ella Jacobson in household of Jacob Jacobson, "United States Census, 1900"
